I had my first Gastro appt yesterday and considered myself to be lucky that I was having an "episode" of severe pain during the consult after eating 2 hours before I arrived! I was a little upset this morning after an ultrasound revealed no stones.. I mean, I should be happy but I felt like there was no solution to my probelems. My liver and pancreas were also normal. I headed right back to the Gastro doctor with the results and was so happy when he said that the test was'nt the final answer and that he wants me to now do an MRI because sometimes "stones" are in the form of sand and can't be picked up on the ultrasound. He said that if that for some reason didn't show what was clearly going on, then he is going to do an endoscopic ultrasound. I am so relieved that this doctor seems to be knowledable and is taking my pain seriously instead of brushing it off as something minor. In the meantime he prescibed me an antispastic medication to stop the pain until my MRI appt on the 10th!
